PAT ON THE BACK.

My last tip in this series is probably the most important one!

It’s where I get to remind you that being a Mum is both the toughest and most rewarding things you’ll ever do- so be kind to yourself if you don’t always get it right!

You’re best is good enough, trust your instincts, take good advice as appropriate and above all keep loving your family (and yourself) to bits!

If you have those things covered, the rest will follow…

Have a Happy Day,

LIFE BALANCE.

This is a tough one. How do you attain life balance when you are pulled in several different directions all day long?

It’s not easy, but it’s essential if you are going to be a happy Mum. It’s about give and take, exploring your options, trying to find a balance between all your ‘must-dos’ and would ‘love to dos’.

WARNING: don’t get disheartened if you spend most of your time ‘out of balance’, life with a young family is unpredictable at best- it’s something you’ll need to commit to, but also something worth the trouble.

Have a Happy Day,

Nicole.

DON’T TAKE BEING ‘MUM’ TOO SERIOUSLY.

Now don’t get me wrong- being a mum is one of the most important jobs in the world!

What I’m referring to here is not to put so much pressure on yourself at always getting it right- that you forget to enjoy the ride!

No one is born an expert Mum- we all learn ‘on the job’. So it’s natural to assume that there will be many trial and errors along the way. The only thing that counts is that you love your kids with every fiber of your being and are doing your best for them.

Besides, being a perfect mum sounds a little boring- where’s the fun if you don’t stuff up and so have no opportunities to laugh at yourself?!

Take Care,

Nicole

GO FOR A WALK

Being a Mum can be exhausting, sometimes you feel like you don’t have a moment to even think- and you’re probably right! J

The importance of getting a break, time to reflect and recharge your mental battery is essential to any happy Mum.

A walk is a great way to achieve this; the sunshine, fresh air and exercise will all assist in the elevation of your happiness levels!

Have a Happy Day,

Nicole
